The Mediterranean region is home to a range of cultures and culinary traditions. Kiriakos Nikoletos and Tony Marianos decided to combine two of these traditions when they founded Bellagio Pizzeria and filled the menu with classic Italian and Greek dishes. Befitting the eatery's name, pizza is prominently featured on the menu's pages. Diners have the option to choose one of the specialty pies or build their own using any of the 25 traditional and gourmet toppings, including everything from imported ham and onions to shrimp and bacon. Other Italian classics—such as chicken parmigiana and baked manicotti—help round out the menu along with the distinctively Greek assortment of gyro platters, spinach pie, and julienned pages from Plato's Symposium. At the same time, Kiriakos and Tony honor their restaurant's Mid-Atlantic roots by adding crab cakes, crab soup, and other regional staples to the increasingly eclectic menu of homespun comfort foods.
